"I never thought that alcohol could ease the notion of the sadness.

Now what used to be a happy home done turned into some bad shit."

I am falling in love with Outkast. I'm pretty much just now discovering them and I've been going back and buying their albums lately.

I never listened to them when they were popular (I was in middle school -- seventh grade, I believe -- when "Hey-Ya!" came out) because I was going through my punk rock phase and was under the horribly mistaken impression that I was not allowed to listen to that kind of music because I would be betraying my "identity" as a "punk kid."

Who went to Catholic school.

And followed all the rules.

And ironed his clothes every morning (a habit which has stuck with me to this day).

I used to be such a moron.

I used to think that the world was mine.

I used to think that my actions on this earth mattered.

Thank goodness that science came into my life and shattered those presuppositions.
